Well, if anyone wants to read some band names, here you go.

These may seem dumb, but we were trying to spurt out as many names as we could think of. So I don't appologize for them

That's a fun list! I only skimmed it, but I'm going to go back and read 'em all. I think "We Hate Creed" is my favorite though.

Is this a reference to You Don't Know Jack? The Spacne commercial was a funny one.

Do you have a sample of your music we could listen to? Might make determining the style easier.

I was going to post the song but had a moments difficulty and got cold feet. I think the guy doing the sound engineering would freek if I put one of the not-yet-ready demos out on the web, so I just can't make myself do it. I assure you I'll put a sample up when he's ready, but by then I'm sure we'll be locked into, er I mean chosen a band name.

Maybe the band name will simply "come to you" at some point. You know, like a flash of inspiration. All you have to do is keep your eyes/ears open and pay attention to your environment and wait for something that fits to come along.

Some friends of mine were in a pop/rock band together during the 80's, and were going through the same name search you're dealing with right now. One day, the lead guitarist/songwriter (Jeff) went out to see a movie with the second guitarist/keyboardist (Greg). The theater was part of one of those national "chains" of theaters, so before each film, the theater would run a short filmstrip which announced the chain name, advertise refreshments, asked you to throw away your own trash, and declared "no smoking". But the latter message was worded strangely. It said, "May we suggest that smoking is prohibited." Jeff said to Greg something like, "That's unusual syntax, don't you think?", and Greg realized that "Syntax" was the perfect name for the band. Jeff agreed, so Syntax it was.

So just watch and listen, maybe a phrase or a word will make itself known to you. You just have to watch for it.

Hmmm, not quite going for "The FerretBoy Band!"

I don't know, I think there is actually some potential there...

The Ferret Project
Fuzzy Vermin
Stretched Rats
Canned Ferrets
Sleeping Ferrets Lie
etc.

Every time I see one of these Creed posts, I keep wondering, "who the hell are Creed?" I guess I listen to my Creed-less Empeg player too much...

And I like the name Dyslixec!

Actually, I liked the first Creed album - but then they stayed the same...in a bad way, unlike ACDC who stayed the same in a good way

Cute!

Besides the obvious, acronyms are like the thing (FFH, PFR...) in Christian music right now (or should I say CCM as it's more commonly referenced?). One of our thoughts was to just pick three random letters and let everyone else decide what they stand for!

This thread has actually gotton my mind on a few good tracks, though everything good one I've come up with sounds so benign compared to what some of you have listed, which is good for a spiritual folk/ pop group, but it's also kind of a letdown after reading some of your suggestions.

Anyway, current thinking between my wife and I (she's one of the other singers in the group) is "Steady On" (which again is not nearly as cool as "Harmonic Dissonance" or some of the other suggestions), but we just sort of happened upon it talking about this thread. We're not sold on it yet (and there is a third member to consult), but it is the only name we've come up with that doesn't sound like a thrash band or isn't just too cheesy.

Anyway, keep the ideas flowing if you have any other names, this has been rather fun thread to read.

One of the band naming engines that Tony pointed me to came up with "Tower of Puppies". I guess it could be "Tower of Ferrets" . . .

We had a band in high school, we called ourselves "Fetal Pigs"
Some other names that just seem great to me are...
Jellied Eel
Frank and the muck bangers (this one is stuck in my head for some reason, I'm wondering if it is already a real band name?)
Fark!
Jebidiah and the magical prosthetic

Those are just a few off the top of my head that seem, well kind of cool.

If you are a christian band, why not take a passage from the Bible?

Isaiah 34:11 - The Plumb Line of Desolation, The Measuring Line of Chaos

Sorry, we found no verses matching your specifications. Try a different search type, or a different Bible version.

Yeah, we did that too. Only those don't exactly scream folk/ pop. "Jars Of Clay" is a good one taken from the bible, but most either end up mega-thrash sounding or really sappy.

I don't know dude, The Plumb Line of Desolation sounds like an acoustic hippy tree-hugging whiner band to me .
